nominee. while the editors praise president obama's early efforts to revitalize the economy through his stimulus plan, it concluded his record on the economy the past four years does not suggest he would lead in the direction the nation must go in the next four years. joining me now for the politics of weather and everything else is obama campaign senior advisor david axelrod. good morning, david. let me start here with the storm. when you look at virginia where this is likely to be the swing state most affected, does anything worry you about that state being more or less paralyzed by weather for a couple three, four days? >> well, the first thing i think we should say is we're most concerned about people. this storm could affect 50 million americans. the president has been in close contact with fema and dhs and all the agencies that have responsibility here to make sure we're doing everything we can for people, and that's what he is going to continue to do throughout this -- throughout this storm, and in terms of how it affects the election, i don't think anybody really knows. obviousl
information technology world is going to be driving our entire economy in ways we can't understand now. ewe can tell from doug's niche titch what they look at is going to be significant for all industry. privacy is one part of it, but given the active nature of the current administration, that's just a perfectly ripe area for a tremendous amount of litigation and regulation to break out. i want to make sure i understand it, and i hope you guys will take general up on his invitation to participate in that effort because initiatives coming from the national ag's association can be very, very significant as you all know. >> well, as you all can see, no longer just the down ballot state office holder slot. these ag's are making an impact across the country on a number of issues, and i hope you will stay focused on what they are doing and provide them your input. thank you so much. give them a round of applause.

. there are people who want to serve when the economy changes, could impact this? yes. but right now, i feel it is not impacting our recruiting. it does not impact our quality operationally, and hopefully that will continue. >> you have been in the job for a little over a year now. god willing and things go right, you have three more years to go. i know that much of the decade before you took this job, it was not in the middle of the night and waking up and saying, what would i do if i was the chief? you have other things on your mind. what has surprised you the most in coming into this circumstance? >> well, i think, -- i guess i've got to be careful. one of the things i tell everybody what i was the commander in iraq and the commander of the core there, have the freedom to make some pretty significant decisions. that freedom is not quite the same here in washington. that is probably one of the biggest adjustment. i had to realize i did not have complete autonomy. i knew that, but it took me a while to understand that really. the real challenges that we have are that we have this large orga
days left to vet two choices for president. 11 days left before we decide who will oversee the economy and security and well-being for the next four years by a wide margin. the most important issue to every group polled says the economy and jobs is the number one issue to americans. that in mind, let's take a look at the two candidate, what they're doing today. governor romney has been delivering a major economic address to voters in iowa. >> this is not the time to double down on trickle-down government policies that have failed us. it's time for new bold changes that measure up to the moment. that can bring america's family to certainty, that the future will be better than the past. >> eric: president obama on the other hand, has a different agenda. today he is hanging out with mtv. look, it doesn't matter what you think of romney. what matters is this. do you really want four more years of obamanomics? check out the latest poll from abc/"washington post." when asked who do you trust more to hand the economy? romney 45 #%. president obama 43%. nine-point difference is huge. we have 1
is at stake. it is a critical time for the country. we face challenges, massive debt, and an economy that is not putting our people to work. young people coming out of college can't find work. china, which is going to be a major economic power. it has been taking a lot of jobs from people in ohio, with radical violent jihadists. this is a big election about big things, and i am proud we are focusing on what we'll do to bring real chance to a country that needs it. we have a president today that -- has a different view about guesus being on the right track. my view is that this is a turning point for america. and those people who want change from day one will vote for paul ryan and myself. as i go across the country, i recognize that people don't want 23 million americans out of work, looking for a good job. they don't want administrations compftablfortable with trillion dollar deficits and kids not getting jobs out of college, and they don't like the gridlock in washington. over the coming days, i will talk to people across the country about what those changes look like. this is deta
for a while. >> it is time for a new economic ta patriotism. rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> i get it about the class. but if we hit people with more tax people who are work maybe doing pretty well and somehow it is more patriotic to pay more taxes, i love what arthur godfrey said. he was proud to be a tax paying american and he could be just as proud for half of the money. it is not a matter of patriotism for the government to take more and more of what we earn and redistribute it not so much to people who are absolutely desperate and in need. but just to people who kind of like to have what somebody else had. there no patriotism in that. it is working hard and not expecting our government to do something for us and expecting us to do something for our government. there was a democrat named john f. kennedy. he had it right. ask not what your country can do for you. ask what you can do for your country. the way i was brought up. democrat or republican. that was patriotism. the obama late night talk show mirn tour continued th

[ rosa ] i'm rosa and i quit smoking with chantix. when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serus allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a history of hear
has risen by more than $5 trillion. the nation's economy, it is all but stagnant. this has governor romney running l as the candidate of change. >> accomplishing change is not just something i talked about. it is something actually done, and we need to have someone in the white house who cannot just talk about it, but do it. lou: the most recent poll of ohio mirrors those tight national polls. rasmussen reports showing governor romney tied with president obama at 49%. nationally the dead heat can be seen across a white canvas of polls. the real clear politics bulbuls has the two men separated tonight by a mere tenth of a percentage point to. the rasmussen reports daily tracking poll has the race at 48%. the abc washington post tracking poll shows the governor taking a one point lead after trailing by one yesterday. those of the two most recent national polls. and while the polls are tight, they are not always accurate or indicative of the of come. either candidate could win this election by a sizable margin, if you consider a sizable margin to be two or 3 percent, perhaps, regardles
reading on the economy before election day shows stronger than expected job gains. but more people were look for work last month and that pushed unemployment a tenth of a point higher to 7 .9%. still a pickup of 171,000 jobs is significant. economist stewart hoffman calls it the real deal. >> a good gain in jobs, a widespread gains, this isn't a fluke, it's a genuine improvement in the jobs market. >> in a moment lou dobbs will tell us if he agrees with that point of view. here is what is really happening. unemployment ticked up to 7.9%. however, there were more jobs available in october. in fact, the workforce rose by 578,000 americans. that's good. the reason unemployment went up is because more americans are now looking for jobs because more jobs are becoming available. the bad news is that unemployment among african americans jumped almost a full percentage point from 13.4% to 14.3%. that is a disaster. also, the real unemployment rate in october was 14.6%, including people who have given up looking for work. bottom line, 12.5 million americans who want to work, can't find employmen
to stimulate the economy is hire more teachers. well, the answer to that is, of course they would say that, they are teachers. i think the best thing to stimulate the economy is to hire more conservative journalist. [laughter] >> i think it is just self-evident that that would work. [laughter] >> that is logic to consider that it rejects other forms of federal spending. there is also a form of keynesianism that sweeps into conservative economic thinking once you get into defense spending. they begin to talk about the loss of jobs at the close on a military base and the multipliers that we have is the hairdresser who, you know, is cutting the true terror won't have a job that point. that may come on some level be true. i could be argued with every program. with other programs we look in terms of how that money could otherwise be spent and who might otherwise be employed and what other economic opportunities are lost as a result of the government spending. but when it is defense spending, conservatives have a bit of a blind spot with that. the purpose of national defense is defending the nat
the clinton administration when the upper income earners were doing well and the entire economy was growing. we will have to make some tough choices. a balanced approach is the only approach i believe will get us there. >> your rebuttal? >> it's amazing to me that you can stand here having voted 4 trillion dollar deficits for the last of four years, the largest, fastest debt increase in american history and say we have to control spending. you've done nothing to control spending over the last four years. with respect to cut, cap, and balance, it's amazing to me that the idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have, and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stop funding things like solyndra and to prioritize things like social security, medicare, and education. that's why i support a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. >> the race to succeed retiring new mexico senator akaka is just one of the key house or senate government races you can follow on c-span.org. -- house, senate, and g

headway on the economy. back in july, obama had a 16-point lead on that measure. today, it's tied. did you wait too long? >> absolutely not. i mean, you know, it's interesting that you're pointing out your national tracker poll but in the virginia poll that you just cited we are beating romney in terms of who do you trust to get the economy going? in terms of the president's plans, we're happy to talk about them. we ran a two-minute ad on it. we have been campaigning across the country on this plan. you know, whether it's putting the best trained workers all over this country. bringing jobs back to this country. rather than sending them overseas or doing some nation-building at home. we're ending two wars. these are big plans and the president laid them out at the convention and it's a second term of an obama presidency will mean. it stands in sharp contrast to romney romney's. we can look at these polls a million different ways. they all say something different. at the end of the day, we're focused on getting the president across the country. meeting as many voters as possible. and invest

. this is a critical time. the president was a president who took office with the economy as the number one challenge and he has high are unemployment today than when he took office. think of that. the president of the united states presides over a nation under his leadership where unemployment is higher than the day he took office. he said he would save social security and medicare because they were headed to insolvency. instead, he made no effort to save either and he took $716 billion from medicare to pay for obamacare. and he said he was going do lower the cost of your health insurance by $2,500 a family by now. instead it has gone up by $3,000 a family. gasoline prices are also up by $2,000 a family. of course, he said he would work across the aisle on the most important issues america faces. the last time the president met with either the republican leader of the house or the republican leader of the senate to talk about jobs or the economy offer the deficit was in july. this is a budget who -- president who has promise add lot of things whose record is different. rather than building the bridg
